Mince pies (2018)

Mini mince pies. A Christmas requisite in England. Preferably with a glass of sherry.

I made these with a jar of mincemeat filling from England, and a box of frozen puff pastry crust. I rolled out the crust a bit, cut out a bigger circle for the bottom (big enough to create the edges of the little tiny pie) and a smaller circle for the top.

My mince pies looked like they were wearing jaunty little berets, rather than a top crust. But they were cute.

I sprayed Pam in the two muffin tins (each could hold 12) and also, beat an egg and brushed the tops with beaten egg before baking. Can’t remember how long I baked them — try perhaps 400 for 15 to 20 minutes? (Watch them carefully).

Dust with sifted powdered sugar right before serving.

See above. Wing it if you have to. Seems to be a forgiving process.
